Preventing food safety problems should be every caterer’s top priority as it takes only one sick customer with a social media platform to ruin a catering business. Catering and restaurant food safety procedures are very similar, but there are additional considerations like transport procedures, which must be taken into account.

Make sure that your suppliers follow HAACP guidelines for food safety and ask about the procedures they follow. By starting with great food, that removes one piece of the contamination puzzle.
